As I wrote in the Week One thread, Pierce was the victim of a headhunting DB on his second target after dropping his first target in the endzone, and as a result he now has a concussion:

Colts head coach Frank Reich said WR Alec Pierce is in the league's concussion protocol.​

Reich said Pierce developed concussion-like symptoms after the team's Week 1 game against the Texans. Pierce ran a pass route on 66 percent of Matt Ryan's drop backs against Houston and dropped a touchdown on one of his two targets. It was altogether a disastrous debut for the rookie speedster. Ashton Dulin, who was targeted on an incredible six of his 14 routes in Week 1, could become a sneaky PPR option in deeper fantasy leagues if Pierce miss Indy's Week 2 game against Jacksonville.

Thanks for that Don. Was at the Panther game Sunday. I didn't look through all the week 1 posts, obviously.

I didn't see the game but did they at least flag the defensive player? It not it wouldn't suprise me. We have seen this type of thing
way too many times from players wih a certain melanin type.

Understood. It was a rough first game for Alec, but I'm not the least bit concerned. From everything I've read the Colts have been very high on him all through training camp and he can only have better games from here. I try to not draw conclusions from a single game, especially the first game of the season and even more so when it involves a rookie. Pittman is going to be the main target on the Colts this season, and Parris Campbell (if he actually stays healthy for once) and Nyheim Hines will also be involved, among others. If Pierce gets 600 or 700 receiving yards his first season that will be a fine result, and anything more than that is just gravy.

Pierce was inactive yesterday due to a concussion he received last week.
